Every day is a good day to visit lake Orta! The village is charming, offering good restaurants and loads of sightseeings around. Been there several times and enjoyed it tremendously each and every time.
Make sure, you have the full day and that you don't miss the boat trip to the island...

Visited Orta San Giulio in November 2013, the village was almost empty, just few tourists and locals. Awesome atmosphere inside the tight "vicoli" and the view from the main square in just stunning.
I suggest a stop at Sacro Monte Orta, 3 mins by car (i dnt know by foot), where you can take the best pictures.

Charming village where you can walk along the shore, shop in unique boutiques, enjoy fabulous sunsets and eat excellent Italian food

The visit to this lake was enthralling. I stayed at San Rocco. The boat ride from the hotel to the island was amusing. The stay was beautiful and the view was marvellous.

Just wanted to get a plug in for the Orta San Giulio itself rather than the lake. Well preserved and quiet in mid October but I can imagine it gets crowded in the height of summer. Lots of eating options. A tip - the wine / deli 50m or so north of the square has an excellent range of aged Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
